Lagoon Launches Exclusive Chesterfield Sofa Design Handmade in UK

The contemporary furniture brand, Lagoon has announced the launch of a brand new Chesterfield sofa, made entirely by hand in the UK.

Beautifully crafted and timelessly elegant, the utterly beautiful St Mawes chesterfield sofa is sublimely sophisticated. The show stopping design is straight from the Lagoon drawing board fusing form and function with Lagoon’s signature contemporary meets traditional twist.

Available in a range of colours including the eye-catching denim blue woollen which lends a modern regal air and finished with luxe leather piping, the St Mawes is the epitome of style on a grand scale. A three seater Chesterfield design with a sleek low back, the sofa stands on six solid mahogany turned feet crowned with solid brass castors – the perfect understated pairing for the brass buttons that march the length of the piece and sit below the trio of sumptuous cushions.

Lagoon founder Edmund Eldergill said, “The St Mawes is a very exciting addition to our product range not least because it's our own design and entirely made by hand for us in the UK. Nothing in the manufacturing process is outsourced or bought in so it’s very patriotic in heritage as well as aesthetics.

“From the inside out the St Mawes prioritises superb quality of construction; the fabric covering is 90% pure wool with 10% flame retardant viscose material and the piping is real leather. The frame is solid beech and has a 10 year guarantee and the legs are sturdy mahogany with traditional brass castors. We’re incredibly pleased with the overall look and feel which embraces the best of the Lagoon furniture ethos and the precise attention to detail that makes Chesterfield sofas so enduringly popular.” 

Although an utterly modern interpretation of the classic Chesterfield silhouette, the St Mawes by Lagoon is hand made by expert craftsmen using time honoured methods with each component hand formed and assembled piece by piece using dowels, screws, and corner blocks for added strength. Individual coil or serpentine springs are painstakingly added to the frame with buttons and studding also applied individually to the finished sofa. All of this attention to detail ensures the ultimate is comfort and a very high 60,000 abrasion rub test, speaking to superb longevity.

The St Mawes Chesterfield sofa by Lagoon is available in denim blue or soft praline brown as standard, but can be ordered in a wide range of modern leathers, fabrics and Italian velvets. It is priced at £2150. To find out more and to order online, visit
